Today we hear the famous parable of the sower and his careless planting of seeds. I’m reminded of an excellent gumbo and how the longer you let it simmer, the better it tastes. If we are to be like the rich soil, we need to meditate on God’s word day and night. The more we meditate on God’s word, the more it becomes a part of who we are. Take a moment today and pray with God’s Word, so that he can become more of us in our daily lives.
